Meet the Fockers ★★½ 2004 (PG-13)

Free-spirited Jews meet uptight WASPs in this long-awaited sequel to 2000's “Meet the Parents.” Nervous Greg Focker (Stiller) and fiancee Pam (Polo) take Dina and Jack (De Niro) to finally meet his folks: lawyer turned house hubby Bernie (Hoffman) and senior citizen sex therapist Roz (Streisand). The duo extravagantly adores each other, much to Greg's embarrassment, and of course, there's more cat issues and a baby to create more problems for poor Greg. Culture clashes follow predictably and everyone seems to be coasting comfortably on their talent. 116m/C VHS, DVD, HD DVD .
